A Day Trip for the Holidays!

Another holiday event to share with my snowbird friends that is a favorite of mine-Christmas by the Sea in Southport! Southport is a quaint fishing village located about 45 minutes north of North Myrtle Beach, just south of Wilmington. Visiting Southport for the Christmas holiday is like stepping back in time as the majority of the waterfront homes are all members of the historical society and the shops and restaurants are all local.
This Saturday, December 12th, is the best day of the month to visit as the majority of the events are held on this day. A holiday concert featuring local high school bands and a Christmas Tour of Homes are two of the daytime events while the evening brings a Winter Night Song, Reflections of the Christmas Eve Wanderings of one E. Scrooge, Esq, an original adaption of the Dickens classic. There are horse drawn carriage rides to view the town which is beautifully decorated for the holidays. My favorite part of the day is the Lighted Holiday Boat Flotilla where locals decorate their boats and float on the water. The holiday lights sparkling off of the water are spectacular!
Wishing all of my snowbird friends a wonderful holiday season and if you have not yet booked your winter rental getaway it is not too late! I have some really great properties that are new to our rental program for the year!

Thank you for choosing Southern Coast Vacations as your winter rental headquarters!
